CHELSEA’s social media administrator poked fun at himself with a blunt three-word statement after Manchester City and Tottenham’s eventful games.
The Blues hosted City after a 4-1 London derby win over Spurs, which saw two players sent off.
Chelsea posted on X, formerly Twitter, after the five-goal thriller: “Honestly had quieter evenings.”
But the Blues’ social media account was called into action when Premier League champions City came to Stamford Bridge.
This game ended in a 4-4 draw, with City believing they had scored a late winner when Rodri’s shot deflected past Robert Sanchez.
But the drama came late when Armando Broja scored a penalty in stoppage time, allowing former City star Cole Palmer to convert the spot-kick.
After the eight-goal classic, Chelsea responded to his previous post with: “Had quieter weeks.”
Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino raged at the final whistle because he thought Raheem Sterling was off target.
But the Argentine later said: “I have to apologize to Anthony.” [Taylor] and the officials.
“At this moment I feel Raheem [Sterling] can score the fifth goal. In that moment, as we finished the game, I turn to Anthony and say, ‘What the hell is going on here?’ Why stop the action at that moment?’

“Then I turned around and said: ‘I deserve a yellow card’ because yes, I went over the limit. I would like to apologize because this type of behavior does not reflect well on me and football.”
As for ignoring Guardiola, he added: “I would also like to apologize to him. At that moment I didn’t see him. I was just focused on what was happening. That’s why I would also like to apologize to Pep.”
Guradiola replied: “It’s not a problem. I don’t want to talk about it, it’s okay. Anyone with the emotions, it happened to me sometimes.”
“It’s fine, honestly. I don’t want you to misunderstand me. This has happened in the past with Pochettino, but it’s okay. Totally, totally fine.”
